Sunday's Stamping: Bluetiful Tribute NOTD

Currently watching: Game of Thrones

 Hi girls!

I've been away on business trips for the last three weeks so all the posts you've been reading were scheduled.  To tell you the truth, before today I hadn't had the chance to paint my nails for a week!  I'm sure you can imagine how much I missed my nail polish and how happy I am to be back home :-)
 
 

For today's manicure, I decided to copy a design I'd seen on Canadian Nail Fanatic's blog back in July.  I don't own the polishes that she used for her manicure but I was lucky to find similar shades in my collection.


 I started with two coats of Essence Absolutely Blue.  Models Own Beth's Blue has been on my wishlist for ages but I haven't been able to find it anywhere so I decided to buy this Essence polish last month as I thought it was a good substitute for Beth's Blue.  Whether it really is, I don't know, but I'm happy with it.


 I then sponged Essence I'm Bluetiful on my tips before sponging on NYC Lights Camera Action to add some extra sparkle.


 Finally, I stamped my tips using Konad plate m36 and Konad special polish in white.  This was actually the first image plate I got, and I never really knew how to use this image.  I love that Canadian Nail Fanatic has given me a new way to incorporate this image into my manicures :-)


What do you think girls?  Do you have any images you're not sure how to use?

Bye for now,
Laura

    1. Thank you :-) Me too normally, I think it helps when you use a stamp that wasn't actually designed for your tips!

  3. Very pretty and elegant! Reminds me of snowflakes or winter for some reason. And I'm with Carol - I have never had a successful experience when I try to use the french tip stamps! Oh well, I will keep trying ;]
